and is not sitting very nicely on my desk....not bad for £5 and a bit of splooshing around of ink, paint, stamps and Viva Decor Inca Gold.
These pictures were taken on Sunday, but I've held off actually uploading until WOYWW. For anyone who does not know what WOYWW is .... then as Hels would say click HERE and it will wisk you off on a cyber magic carpet ridge to the lovely Miss Julia's blog to find out ~and see all the other WOYWW desks~.
I think I may have told you all ~too long ago to remember now~ that little box originally started off as a rough and ready tray possibly for gardening (or a childs room as it had ink stains and also mud in) for £5 from my favourite Kitty's in Seal ~which is a shabby chic/retro kind of found object (posh word for junk shop I suspose, but it is far more stylish than a junk shop has any right to be). I love Kitty ~she is the sweetest person~ and I love her shop more ..... Toodles has placed an exclusion zone around it, but we have to drive past the place every day on the way to school .... I will literally crack at some point and go shopping.
Thank you all for your lovely comments last week, I managed to hop round all the blogs, and left a comment on quite a few I think. It was also noted that it was simply not acceptable to conceal from you all the true horror/terror/faint-inducing state of desk .... so I will go and retrieve the batteries for my camera and pop back in a moment or too with another piccie.
Oh but first, here is what I worked on on Sunday as well .... we popped to Hobby Craft and I picked up some Magnetic Foam (I had seen this on a blog, but sadly can't remember which one to give credit) ... the foam stands up really well when stacked in my basked, as because said foam is magnetic one side holds my nesties. I cut ~more or less~ just bigger than the largest one in the set and hey presto:
Sadly though, they didn't have foam in purple, so I have had to (settle) for pink.
This now such a long post .... I will pop the piccie of today's mess on the post above or click HERE for the magic cyber carpet ride.
